Montreal quarterback Vernon Adams definitely heard the Alouettes faithful calling for Johnny Manziel to play.
In the Manziel’s first game with the Alouettes last Thursday, a significant portion of the 16,654 fans at Percival Molson Stadium were chanting “we want Johnny” while Adams was in the game.

“Yes, it hurt me to hear that. I have nothing more to say or to give to the supporters of Montreal. Never again. Their behaviour was very disrespectful. It was not like I was playing badly. I do not want them to ask me anything, not even a small piece of equipment,” Adams told La Presse.
Adams completed 15-of-28 passes for 217 yards and one touchdown while leading the team in rushing yards with 72 on eight carries to go with a touchdown in a loss to the Edmonton Eskimos during Week 7.
“I do not care what the situation is. It was a lack of respect and it affected me,” Adams said.
“But that’s fine, in the future, I’ll treat the fans as they treated me, that’s all. ”
The 25-year-old made amends on Tuesday.
“I was just emotional. I need to be better. I would never disrespect a fan or anything like that.” Adams said.
“I do want to apologize to the Montreal fans.”
